NEARC Fall 2015 has ended

Welcome to the technical sessions schedule for the 2015 Annual Fall NEARC Conference. 

 The technical schedule is capable of being sorted by date (i.e, Monday, Nov. 9) or track (i.e. USGS Hydro). You can also search for a presentation title (i.e. Harmonizing the NHD and WBD Datasets in Maine), key term (i.e. NHD), or presenter last name (i.e. O’Neil-Dunne). The sort and search functions can be found on the navigation panel on the right side of this page. If you hover over the "Schedule" button, you’ll also see different schedule view options (i.e. Grid or Simple). Try selecting each of them to see which view you prefer. 

MY SCHEDULE FEATURE: It is not required of you to create a Sched.org account to use this site but if you do so, you’ll be able to use the "My Schedule" feature which allows you to create your own schedule for the conference. Click the "Sign Up" button in the top right corner of this page to create a Sched.org account.

Continuing to Map the Laurentian Legacy: Managing and Distributing Campus Infrastructure Data

Dakota Casserly, Carol Cady*, Shayla Witherell

At NEARC 2014, we introduced our project Mapping the Laurentian Legacy (MLL). This is a cooperative project between St. Lawrence University’s Donor Relations and GIS Programs to map the donor named spaces on campus both indoors and out. This presentation will provide an update on the project. The data are mapped with a combination of GPS, georeferenced building plans and donor records. By the end of the fall 2014 semester all outdoor locations were mapped and we had started on indoor spaces. We also began developing web map services using ArcGIS Server and Portal. We expect to develop a web mapping service for Donor Relations to manage existing sites including monitoring maintenance records, and an another service that will be available to campus visitors. While many institutions and governments are using GIS for facility management, we have not found any colleges or universities managing and distributing information about named spaces with a GIS. Because we are a small liberal-arts college with limited GIS staff, much of the work relies on student help. This project allows us to be more efficient mangers, provide students with real world GIS project experience, and give us new ways of seeing campus.
